Dear conservatives running for president in 2016, I matter. Republicans have an incredible opportunity to speak to a group of people they have dismissed for years, but that conversation cannot even start if conservatives won’t so much as feature us in their ads. Republicans who have and will throw their hats in the race for president will serve themselves and our country well by not dismissing the Christian black conservative.

I’m not a white supremacist, but if I were, I don’t think I would change one thing that has happened culturally, socially, or politically to destroy black people in America.

Apparently a few black pastors earned the distinction of “sell out” for daring to meet with Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump this week. They are accused of formally endorsing Trump simply because they were willing to listen to him speak and in return ask questions. When is a meeting an endorsement? When you’re black and dare to think for yourself.

Republicans, skilled at snatching defeat from the jaws of victory, are not only looking the gift elephant in the mouth, they are also pulling its teeth while feeding the jackass. It is political suicide for Republicans to dedicate themselves to the destruction of Donald Trump's candidacy or to the destruction of each other.

Matthias Burnett, pastor of First Baptist Church in Norwalk, Connecticut, preached “An Election Sermon” in nearby Hartford on May 12, 1803.

This presidential campaign on both sides has been like none other I’ve ever seen. The candidates running for president of the United States are so different across the board that many voters are in a state of uncertainty. As I examine the field, one candidate stands out to me, but not to the majority of voters.

Dr. Carson Misjudges His Supporters
Tuesday, March 15, 2016 | Meeke Addison
I wrote previously about Dr. Ben Carson’s shocking endorsement of Donald Trump, carefully suggesting that his decision was more political than principled. Many of Dr. Carson's supporters have rejected this move, while others have extended the benefit of the doubt.

“These steaks are too high.” If you have shopped at your local grocery lately, then you know this to be true. But from a figurative perspective, the stakes of this election cycle could be the most important in generations.

If Americans could get away with managing their financial lives in the same manner as our federal, state, and local governments, we would never fill in our personal money pits. The term “money pit” refers to any situation that will never give back a positive return on what has been poured into it.

Is it time for our leaders to get serious about illegal immigration? Or is America a heartless and racist nation? The questions many are asking seem void of clear answers. Politicians, as though they are directing traffic, detour the American people around the truth.

As an African-American male and a Christian, I am appalled and highly offended that my ethnicity is being lumped in with something that God’s Word says is wrong, with the homosexual community having the gall to state their plight was and is the same as what blacks dealt with in the legacy of slavery and oppression in America.

No doubt some will cry foul and subsequent protests will ensue, as will commentary from liberal pundits who feel justice did not prevail and that Freddie Gray’s death was the result of racism and “police culture.” But cooler heads and the facts should overcome, and in my opinion, that has been the case thus far in the courts.

Commandment numero uno from my coaches: Under no circumstance were boys to go into the girls’ locker room — No excuses and no exception. If someone broke this rule, he would be removed from the team and labeled a pervert for the rest of the school year … maybe even for life.

To the “Never Trump” movement in the evangelical community who say they won’t vote for Trump, the ones who plan to not vote at all and “go fishing” on Election Day because of their displeasure that Trump and Clinton are viable candidates, here are my thoughts:

In route to the Republican National Convention in Cleveland last week, I took a cab to my hotel from the airport. Simon, my driver, had a thick, African accent, so I knew he must be an immigrant. We exchanged pleasantries, and then he hit me right between the eyes with a pointed question.
